Customer Question
I have an icon...

I have an icon brought from Italy in 1853 by my Great grandfather.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I only know that it is an oval painted on metal and it is of Jesus. I was told years ago it is called Ecce Homo.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I am 88 years old and I know it's time to decide what to do with it and I don't know where to begin.
